December 31st

Like I said, reflecting on ten years of blogging will come in January. But 2019 was still a really good year. I waited until a little late to start writing this, but what else is new?

This year I started a new position at my job, got a second cat, really settled into my new apartment, and even went traveling abroad. I started school again and have a 4.0 GPA right now. I got to do jury duty. I went to a bunch of really fun conventions. Overall it was a really good year.

Thank you all for sticking with me through ten years of blogging. I'm very proud of myself. I'm looking forward to 2020. I hope you all have an amazing New Year's Eve and a fabulous 2020 as well!

Much love!

December 30th

Slept in just a smidge today, then was tired all day at work. This weather isn’t helping much. Then had some anxiety in the afternoon. I spent some time at home with Brad being a bit sleepy and brain-foggy while playing some fun games, and of course, proceeded to have dinner and am now watching Project Runway. It always nice when you like all of the finalists on a show!

December 29th

I can tell you all right now that I"m not ending this blog on the 31st. I was planning to do it on 1/10/20 anyway since that's when I really started daily blogging, but I feel like I"m not in the right headspace to wrap this all up yet anyway. I want to spend some time reflecting on the blog and writing a good, long post to sum up the decade, but since my health right now is still a little funky, I'm just not ready to right now. And that's okay!

I've been super tired the past week from my new meds but have been trying to get out and about every day, or at least spend time with friends. Today I thought maybe I did just need to sleep all day, so I kind of did just that. I feel a little out of it still, but I just want to try to get to bed on time tonight and have a good work day tomorrow.

Now it's dinner time!

December 28th

More Project Runway today! Plus a trip to the game store and some fun games, and then a trip to the pet store for animal cuddles!

Bit of a weird tummy today since I actually ate out at a restaurant for the first time in a week but all is well. Just doing some Disney trivia now!

December 27th

Today was resting and Project Runway and grocery shopping! I also bought a coloring book and some markers and colored pencils. And I just finished a nice yummy turkey and salami sandwich!

I’m so glad it’s the weekend!

December 26th

My sleep schedule is a little wonky, but I did go into work for a few hours! And then got some Subway for dinner! And then watched some YouTube and more Project Runway.

Time to work on my coloring book!

December 25th

Merry Christmas all! I spent some good time today hanging out with Brad and playing some Scattergories. Now to watch some more Project Runways!

December 24th

Did a little work, took a little nap today. Bit of an upset tummy this morning, but now just resting. And hanging out with the kitties!

December 23rd

Half day at work today, but my goodness I was very tired. Tomorrow is a half day again!

Bit of a funny tummy tonight so just relaxing and watch British panel shows again.

Sunday, December 22, 2019

December 22nd

Just watching QI today. Probably going to take some Klonopin tonight so I can get to sleep on time and go to work tomorrow.

December 21st

Feeling a little better today, though I did sleep in pretty late! Now I’m waiting for my bedsheets to dry!

Just watching some figure skating videos now!

December 20th

Another sleepy day for this girl! Just relaxing and resting today. On the up and up.

December 19th

Ahh, the Blogger homepage changed! I am conflicted! It hasn’t changed in quite some time.

I stayed home and rested today. YouTube and napping and kitties.

December 18th

Klonopin is back in my life. Just gonna have a sleepy night tonight.

December 17th

Today was chill. Admin happy hour after work. Got my grades in (All A’s!). Now it’s YouTube and oatmeal and chilling.

Also it feels like Wednesday today. And it’s cold. Yep!

December 16th

Today was super snowy! Then around lunchtime I developed a sore throat, so I’m just taking it easy tonight. Warm foods and all that. I ordered, like, a lot of tea from Amazon Prime Now. I hope some of it’s good!

Final grades for school are slowly rolling in...100% on my final paper for my religion class! Yay!

December 15th

Sorry for the bad post yesterday. I had a house guest who really wanted to watch me blog apparently. The whole night was kinda uncomfortable actually. Luckily today we were able to talk about it and things seem smoothed out.

Now I’m watching a video about sexual dimorphism. As one does, you know.

Pigeon did well at the vet today! And now I want to sleep. I need headphones, I have guests. Siiiiigh.

December 13th

All done with school for this term! And winter break is a month long, so that will be very nice. My next two classes are longer and more introductory so I’m not exactly super excited about them, but I think it’ll be just fine. I’m sure my psych class will have quizzes, which I haven’t missed. English should be pretty easy though.

I’m kinda sore, so I’m gonna take a nice hot shower and head to bed. Pigeon has a vet appointment tomorrow and then I’m chilling with some friends.

December 12th

Three out of five pages done on my final paper for one class and totally done with the other. My schedule today involved like six hours at the front desk because our receptionist was out and apparently no one else was available. So I didn’t get as much done as I might have wanted, but in the end I probably would have just overworked if I did much more. So it’s all good!

December 11th

So I didn’t really sleep last night. Went into work late. Work wasn’t bad, and I got a lot of homework done. Then after work my anxiety went back up. Mental and physical. Oof. 

Just trying to have a calm evening now. YouTube time.

December 10th

I'm kind of loving this final week of school for the year. I've really preferred taking 5-week courses to 10-week ones, and the pace just suits me better. Next term is two concurrent 10-week courses, but they are both intro courses so I can't imagine it will be too crazy. One of them is basically English 101, and based on the writing of other students that I've seen in my other classes, I don't think that one will be challenging for me to do well in. (I ended a sentence about English superiority with a preposition. Sue me.)

December 9th

I cranked out so much schoolwork today. It's my last week before winter break! Gotta finish strong! Really hard to respond to other students when no one else has posted anything in one of my classes though. We only have until Friday this week until Sunday, so let's get on it folks!

Time for a late shower tonight. Gonna have a snack first though.

December 8th

Nothing like watching a video about a $105 lipstick. And it’s not even a good lipstick. Bond No 9, why are you like this?

I did a whole lot of nothing today. I’ve just been sleeping and chilling and hanging out with the cats. And that’s okay.

Saturday, December 7, 2019

December 7th

I saw Frozen 2 today! I actually thought it was pretty good. Definitely some good music. (But also some bad music...looking at you, Kristoff.) Samantha is the best character, fight me. If I worked at Disney I would try to get that on my name tag for my character.

I guess tomorrow I’m just doing laundry! Might see what’s on Netflix, my dad recommended “The Movies That Made Us” to me. Apparently the first episode(?) is about Die Hard, and that means Alan Rickman.

December 6th

Not one but two meetings on a Friday? Oh sure. But I got all my homework done so I have a free weekend.

I am unreasonably sleepy tonight for some reason. I gotta shower still as well. But...kitty cuddles.

Thursday, December 5, 2019

December 5th

I've been feeling just a little bit off since last night. Just sort of a general nausea that's hanging around. I was fine this afternoon but it's kinda back again. And also the chicken patty I put on my sandwich for dinner had actually literally no flavor so that was weird and unhelpful.

Did I watch another YouTube video about The Wiggles tonight? Yes, yes I did.

December 4th

Not too much going on today. Played a game with my coworkers at lunch. Did a little homework. Chill evening.

Not much going on tomorrow either. Just work and homework again. It’s cold here.

December 3rd

Today was the best health day I’ve had in awhile and I’m super happy. Not perfect, but certainly better than it’s been. I really feel like this new stuff is starting to work.

Today was actually pretty productive. Did some work, did some school. All that jazz.

I met a wonderful cat today. I actually met lots of great cats and dogs at the animal Chester but there was this really hefty tortie girl named Bella who had the most gorgeous markings and I fell in love. She was so calm and gentle and kind and affectionate and if I didn’t already have two cats I would have adopted her in a second. I love her. I hope she finds the best home ever.

December 2nd

A productive day both for doing homework and receiving student loan checks. And health wise, not a bad day either. Definitely the best I’ve been at lunchtime in awhile which is great. I hope that means the new meds are starting to work.

So I have two desks at work and I split my time between the two. Let it be known that my basement desk is COLD and I was freezing at work today. One of my coworkers was wearing her jacket. If I didn’t think I’d fall asleep I might buy a space heater.

December 1st

Happy December! I guess this is the last month of daily blogging, huh? I suppose since my daily blogs didn’t truly start until 1/10/10, I may go into January a bit as well. But still, I suppose it’s winding down a bit. It’s honestly surreal. I’ve been doing this for ten while years and it sure doesn’t feel like it. My ten year high school reunion is next year. I wouldn’t be surprised if I still blog from time to time...it’s a habit at this point if nothing else. But it’s also helpful for me to look back on for various reasons.

I gotta get this shit published. Not to sell, just for myself to have a physical copy. Well, probably note than one copy. I’ve written a lot. In fact, I’d love to know how many words I’ve written over the years!
